Pugs, by nature, are quite comical and, in general, will try anything once. On a cold day a little sweater may actually be quite welcome by your furry friend. A word of warning about clothing in the summer for your Pug is appropriate here. Dog clothes are cute but you need to be very careful not to let your Pug “overheat”. This applies not only in the summer but for anytime you want to dress up your pet but he will be staying inside. Remember dogs release their body heat by panting. Your Pug has a less efficient respiratory system because of their head structure. Their flat face (they are called a Brachycephalic breed) inhibits their ability to release heat. Rapid panting is a warning sign that your dog is being stressed in his effort to regulate his temperature. Make sure all clothing is off your dog if he is exhibiting these symptoms.
If you suspect problems from any of the dog poisonous plants listed, the suggested treatment is to induce vomiting. Contact your veterinarian or a poison control center before treating your dog. To induce vomiting in dogs, provide a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide. Give the dog 1 teaspoon (5ml) per 10 pounds of body weight (). Repeat every 15-20 minutes, no more than 3x, until vomiting occurs. Hydrogen peroxide is recommended over Syrup of ipecac. The reason is that syrup of ipecac is stronger and less effective. Do not use unless recommended by a veterinarian.
My dog beat parvo, but never became all the way healthy since. At first he couldn't go for walks, would have to carry him back. He is a Beagle and this was three years ago, he was around five years old. We paid a fortune too, and one of the dogs died. Broke my heart. But the Beagle has had problems ever since. Asthma, coughing, back legs weak. Was quite the runner and wild and crazy Beagle before parvo, but never the same since. Every year we are grateful he makes it one more year.
Right now we have a Lab female five years old, that got sick three days ago, fever and chills and Sat. night started bleeding excessively vaginally. We keep putting new sheets down for her to lay on. She is inside dog only. Eyes hardly open and whites are beet red. She will not eat, but drinks water. It looks like she lost muscle mass and weight just in a few days; like she shrunk. Belly was swollen at the bottom though, not as much now. Every place around us has been closed. I'm paralyzed unable to drive and my husband is blind. We do have a family member come out today thank the Lord. But, it looks like the bottom part of her mouth, jaw is sunken up and only the top remains. I've never seen anything like it. Out of my mind right now with worry. She is the light of my life. Does anyone know what this could be. She has never had puppies and most unlikely pregnancy.
